Victorinox has just released a new children’s pocket knife: The My First Victorinox Animal Edition.
We think the My First Victorinox is a great first pocket knife. It’s not overcomplicated and the rounded blade helps prevent accidents.
However, for very young kids, they should always be supervised, and even then, expect a few cuts.
Your child might be Scouts age before they can use it unsupervised, and even then, the Scouts have rules for pocket knives.
This set also comes with a neck lanyard and a colouring book.
As well as jungle animals, there’s also a dolphin and rabbit set.
The colouring book and graphics would not appeal to Scout’s age kids. Victorinox is appealing to a much younger audience. Perhaps, a very young audience.
Plus, the photo at the top with the whittling is misleading, as you cannot make those with the My First Victorinox set as you don’t have a smaller blade with a point to make the eyes and mouth.
As I said before, we think the My First Victorinox is an excellent kid’s pocket knife, but have they missed the mark on this?
